Practical Guide to traditional chinese veterinary medicine is a book which shows successfully the practice of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).
It contains any form of medicine, depends on having a clear understanding of both theoretical principles and practical techniques.
The mindset required to understand TCVM is very different from that used in conventional medicine, and this can often make the transition to TCVM difficult for Western-trained practitioners.
With the ever-increasing interest in TCVM,
there is a broad selection of books both ancient and modern
on Chinese medical theory, acupuncture, herbal medicine, Food Therapy, Tui-na and lifestyle/exercise modification.
This book is for busy practitioners, as they have rarely time to search
several books for the clinically relevant information needed to design a comprehensive treatment protocol for each individual patient.
It is also hard to find information on the TCVM treatment of species that have not traditionally been treated with TCVM.
This is the third of 4 volumes of Practical TCVM and describes the diagnosis and treatment of Equine Diseases.
The first volume, Practical Guide to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine-EMERGENCIES AND FIVE ELEMENT SYNDROMES
and second volume, SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE, were published in 2014.
The fourth volume covers TCVM for exotic species (13 chapters) that will be scheduled.
Each chapter of these volumes presents the complete TCVM treatment of disorders commonly seen in clinical practice.
In this actual volume, the most common TCVM Patterns for each conventional medical diagnosis in horses are discussed.
The authors give for each Pattern, the etiology, clinical signs and treatment with acupuncture,
Chinese herbal medicine, Tui-na, Food Therapy and lifestyle modification are described.
Finally, each chapter includes case examples to illustrate the treatments that have been described, and provide information on the success of the treatment.
